Jack Zack Hug

I miss LJ.

So, rather than bemoaning the quiet here at LiveJournal, I'm just going to post. No complaints, no promises to post every day, nada. I miss this place and its people, so I'll just post.

I stopped watching Bones several seasons ago. But a week or so ago I watched the last episode of Season 11, and I was able to watch it and just enjoy it for what it is now -- without any expectations. It felt like a reunion with good friends, Then today I read that it's been renewed for its 12th and final season, all of which combined make me think that I might actually like to watch this last season when it starts in April. Bones was such a huge part of my fandom experience, and watching that episode made me rather nostalgic. I wonder if there's any chance they'd bring back Eric Millegan (Zack Addy) for an ep. I bet a lot of viewers would love that, though it might spark some residual pain, too...

Five Happy Things, gakked from the wise dabhug

In honor of dabhug, who used to post Five Happy Things -- and will hopefully return to LJ to do so once again.

Five Happy Things

1. Ghirardelli Midnight Reverie dark chocolate square(s) + a schmear of almond butter = OMGWTFBBQ
2. Having shelter, clothes, and food.
3. My Kindle.
4. Restarting a Buffy the Vampire Slayer rewatch and discovering I still love the show.
5. Borgen. I never expected to like a Danish TV show this much, given that I don't understand a word of Danish, but subtitles and great acting help.

Want a postcard?

Hello. I have a pack of 4x6 index cards that are waiting to be covered in something -- maybe paint, maybe collage, maybe a doodle, maybe some found poetry -- and sent out. The Internet is great, but there's something uniquely satisfying about a postcard or letter. If you're reading this and would like to receive a piece of snail mail from me, message me your address. I can't seem to get comment screening to work on this post.

You're under no obligation to mail me anything in return; wouldn't it be nice to find something other than bills in your mailbox?  It's been quite a while since I've done something creative, and my fingers (and brain) are getting itchy. I can't promise what I send will be beautiful, but I can promise I won't be asking for money. :)  I will mail to people outside the US, though it'll take me longer to figure out postage.

Be well, friends.
